Can you use cream cheese icing instead of buttercream to do a frozen transfer? I've heard if you freeze a block of cream cheese it will become grainy... Has anyone every tried this. I am wanting to do it for a red velvet cake this weekend. Thanks.

I don't know about a FBT with cream cheese but frozen cream cheese gets gross.

It took FOREVER for the ONE I tried to freeze firm enough to pick up then it thawed before I was able to get the paper removed....It wasn't my icing recipe so I couldn't tell you what went in it(when I was helping another bakery after their cd walked out)...after that, it was decided that traditional buttercream would be used regardless of what type icing the transfer would be going on...just the customer would be notified in advance.
